Will et


tough on

trash and


junk, says


Council
The Glen St Mary Town Council
decided in regular session the eve-
ning of November 15 to get tough
with violators of laws banning trash
and junk on private property.
The four members of the board
present that evening spent consid-
erable time debating how best to
approach what all agreed was a
problem of increasing numbers of
violators in town limits.
"Enough is enough," declared
Councilman Larry Payne, who led
off the discussion during the hour-
long session.
'There are many older citizens
and longtime residents of Glen who
keep their property up and it's not
fair to them that neighbors don't
want to keep up theirs," observed
Mr. Payne.
He cited cases of both commer-
cial and residential violations with-
out naming specific locations or
owners, and suggested either refer-
ring them to the Baker County
Code Enforcement Board or hiring
someone to scout the town for vio-
lations and report them.
Glen St. Mary several years ago
agreed to let the county code board
act as a hearing and enforcement
agency. but has referred few cases.
"I'm all for cleaning up, but 1
just don't want to get nit-picky,"
declared Councilman Woody
Crews, a position he reiterated sev-
eral times during the discussion.
Mr. Crews favors a more lenient
interpretation of refuse ordinances,
allowing broader use of private
property.
"If I bring an old lawn mower
out in the yard and tinker with it for
a few weeks, am I in violation? he
queried.
Several council members appear-
ed hesitant to use two existing em-
ployees to survey both sides of US
90 noting potential and obvious
violations.
Mayor Juanice Padgett will this
week contact Robert Hancock, the
county's code enforcement officer,
to see if he might fill the roll.
"I have no problem standing up
to these people and saying 'you're
in violation,'" said Mr. Payne.
We're paid to take a stand on mat-
ters like this that's what we're up
here for."
The councilman cited common
violations: non-working or non-ser-
viceable cars and boats, scrap metal
and garbage bags in plain site on
private lots in Glen. On the com-
mercial side, he appeared to refer to
a scrap metal business on the
town's east side that has several
times been found in violation by
the county board.
In other business; "the council
authorized Mayor Padgett to seek
out a consultant to advise the town
on implementing its pending $1500
impact fee.
Councilman Payne said he still
harbors doubts about approving the
fees as part of the county ordi-
nance. Mayor Padgett favors them
and Councilman Crews said he has
"mixed feelings."
"You take a $3500 fee to move a
mobile home in and that's going to
be hard on the poor people, and
there's a lot of people here who are
poor," reasoned Mr. Crews;
He. was referring to the $2000
fee being considered by the school
board atop that of Glen,
The council set the evening of
November 29 for a workshop on
extending sewer aind water utilities
south on CR 125 to the Interstate
10 interchange.

Macclenny, Florida 50


The Tuesday afternoon run from Baker High over to the middle school backed up around the corner at Lowder and US 90 as, one by one, buses stopped to cross the CSX tracks with-
out the benefit of a crossing guard to wave them on.


School buses now, stacked at


It all started as a letter writing
and e-mail campaign by a Mac-
clenny employee of the Depart-
ment of Transportation, and in the
end the state decided he was right.
Only uniformed law enforce-
ment officers can waive school
buses through railroad crossings.
As a result, the sheriff's depart-
ment has taken three guards off
gated crossings at Lowder St., 6th
and 5th Sts. in Macclenny, and the
move added to traffic headaches in
the city about 2:00 pm when 44
buses move from Baker High east
over to the middle school.


They all have to cross at Lowder
and the 15 second delay as each
bus comes to a complete halt and
the driver opens the door than
scans to the left for trains translates
into about 12 minutes onto the trip.
In the mornings it's not so bad
because there are fewer buses.
.John Hires, who now works for
DOT's Road Ranger roadside as-
sistance program, says he first
approached the sheriff's depart-
ment about the apparent violation
last year.
SHe'd noticed the crossing guards
and remembered from past law


enforcement training the rule about
waving vehicles through crossings.
"I contacted Chief [Gerald]
Gonzalez and Lt. [Billy] Miller and
they told me we had our own rules
and had gotten approval to have the
guards. I knew that wasn't right."
He wrote a letter to the editor
that was published in The Press in
Early September. He also kept up a,
campaign to DOT and the office of
Governor Jeb Bush.
The effort paid off.
"An official with-DOT was com-
ing through to Jacksonville and
stopped in Macclenny. He left a


crossings
message on my voice mail saying
he.observed buses going right
through the crossings without a law
officer there, and he said they can't
do that," recalls Mr. Hires.
"The state basically told us our
training program for the guards
Swas no good," said Chief Gonzalez
on Tuesday of this week, the same
day he and Sheriff Joey Dobson
met with school bus drivers.
"We told them we believed what
we weie doing was okay and I'd
say the drivers were extremely

Firefighters

about rescue

at train wrecks
That wrecked passenger train in the fore-
ground may be a to', but a safety official
from Amtrak wasn't toying around the
night of November 8 conducting a four
hour class for local fire and rescue x workers
on what to expect if one of the high-speed
trains wrecks while going through Baker
County. Frank Gerrard, who is also a con-
ductor on an Amtrak route, familiarized the
42 member class with construction of the
cars and engines on the trains and talked
extensively about extracting injured riders
through the large car windows. He also
diagramed the high voltage (and highly
dangerous) electrical system that supplies
internalpower to the trains. County Chief
Richard Dolan said the class was made up
of both Macclenny and county depart-
ments, and eligible firefighters received
continuing ed credits for attending. Amtrak
has reduced the number of trains on the
east-west line through Baker County in
recent months. Captain Jinmmy Simmons of
Station 10 is in the immediate foreground

Six imp icated in 'thfta safe om BCMS
OtJL~~~~O Sa~LLMtL ttLlI UM i7//


Six persons, two of them juve-
nile age students, have been charg-
ed with varying degrees of in-
volvement in the October 30 week-
end burglary at the main office of
Baker County Middle School in
Macclenny.
The sheriff's department also
recovered a hefty office safe
weighing several hundred pounds.
It was stashed in a wooded area
near Margaretta west of Glen St-.
Mary and all the cash inside had
been taken.
A tip from a confidential source
led a sheriff's investigator to ques-
tion several key figures in the bur-
glary, one of whom is yet to be ar-
rested.
He is a 15-year-old male believ-
ed to be in Bradford County.
Based on statements collected
by Investigator Gerald Rhoden,
Rushad Lee, 18, acted as a lookout
as the male student and a female
student, 15 years of age, entered
the school by scaling a fence that


evening.
One of the students recalled the
safe in a bookkeeper's office and
using a steel bar, the pair broke into
a main double glass door of the
school's office building. They used
the same method to enter metal
office doors, breaking glass and
reaching through to unlock doors.
The trio enlisted the help of

lift the safe into a vehicle and the
latter suspect succeeded in opening
it with a hatchet after it was taken
to a wooded area near Ray Givens
Road.
The conspirators rented: a room
at the Econolodge in Macclenny
and later that night divided up an


estimated $800 they retrieved from
the safe.
Police also established that the
next morning, the juveniles had a

Mall where they spent several hun-

items.

1st vote


by city
Board wants
cross-check on
low income waiver

The Macclenny City Com-
mission approved without dissent
the first reading of its ordinance
establishing a $3000 impact fee for.
new construction to help with the
cost of added services brought on
by growth.
The vote came during a special
meeting the evening of November
14, and final passage pends a sec-
ond hearing on November 13.
No one from the public showed
up Tuesday to speak for or against
the fees, the second enacted by a
local government in a month.
Prior to the second reading,
however, the commission instruct-
ed its counsel to determine if sever-
al provisions parallel state statute in
the relatively new laws governing
the fees.
Attorney Frank Maloney ac-
knowledged during the hearing he
culled wording from several exist-
ing ordinances recommended by
the Florida League of Cities, and
was uncertain as to the provisions
raised by Commissioner Vernon
Bennett,
Other than a minor wording
change dealing with the portion of
fees that go toward law enforce-
ment, Mr. Bennett was concerned
about provisions for loaning all or
part of the fee costs on housing for
low, very low and moderate income
housing.
As proposed, the ordinance
allows Macclenny to loan low
income persons up to 100% of the
fees, repayable on sale or transfer
of the property. The city can also
refinance fees after 15 years under
certain provisions.
For moderate income as defined
in the city's comprehensive plan,
Macclenny is allowed to loan half
of the fee for up to ten years with a
refinance clause.
The commission agreed with
Mr. Bennett it's wise to check those
provisions agaisnt what is allowed
by state law.
The $3000 fee is divided by or-
dinance.among several city depart-
ments, the greatest portion of
$1142 for fire and emergency ser-
vices and the least at $59 for ad-
ministrative costs.
The commission approved im-
pact fees at that level on October
25, just over what had earlier been
recommended by consultant Frank
Darabi of Gainesville, who also is
the city and county engineer on
retainer.
For multi-room or apartment
projects, the fee will be $588 each;
the fee per bed on hospitals, nurs-
ing homes and motels is $735.
SFee schedules for both the Town
of Glen St. Mary and the Baker
County school district pend.
In other business during the spe-
cial meeting, Macclenny opted to
apply for and spend a $10,000
grant from the Department of Com-
munity Affairs on the concurrency
portion of planning now required
by law.
Tony Prosser of the Prosser
Hallock planning firm in Jackson-
ville indicated many communities
are choosing to spend the grants
thusly. He defined concurrency as a
relatively new term that means
communities must have infrastruc-
ture in place before permitting for
new growth.
The Baker County Commission
recently chose the same area to
spend a $15,000 DCA grant, ac-
cording to County Manager Jason
Griffis, who was at the city meet-

Pool pro

%BY iLAURABETH BRINER
Press Staff
After a long journey from lob-
bying for funding and commit-
ments from local government bod-
ies, and a setback earlier this year
involving the site, groundbreaking
for the YMCA pool is set for Janu-
ary 1, 2006.

unhappy," he added.
"We don't have the personnel to
man the crossings twice a day, and
we can't obligate ourselves."
SGary Pelham, who heads up the
school district's transportation de-
partment, attended the same meet-
ing and is equally resigried that
there is little anyone can do about
it.
"Technically, we have to stop at.
each crossing, and we'll do what
we have to do," said Mr. Pelham.
"It adds about 10-12 minutes to
the run over to the middle school
in the afternoons, but they're arriv-
ing about the time the kids are get-
ting out now instead of several
minutes before, so I guess it's not
so bad."
The sheriff's department re-
sponded to Mr. Hires' initial com-
plaint by instituting a training
course for railroad guards, who
essentially do nothing other than
watch for trains.
"We were convinced and we
still are convinced that we've
never put those buses in any, kind
of jeopardy; their safety was never
compromised," said Lt. Gonzalez.
"Faced with a violation of state
law, we didn't have a lot of choice
other than cut it out of the pro-
gram."

"We are currently taking bids
and it's down to two companies,"
said YMCA executive director
Shawn Eastman, "but part of the
agreement will be to start January
1, 2006."
The pool was first proposed in
2003 and received pledges of
funding and acreage from Glen St.
Mary, Wal-Man Distribution Cen-
ter, Macclenny and the County
Commission. Construction was
scheduled to start in the summer of
2005; but hit a snag when the soil
samples came back with problems.
"They told us we had too much
clay in the soil. Heat would make
the concrete expand. and the cold
would make it contract which
!would make the bottom of the
pool crack and we would have ma-
jor problems," said Eastman.
The soil problem is resolved,
says Eastmari. "What we will do is
dig the hole bigger and basically
line the concrete with the right
type of soil."
He would not name the con-
struction companies, but both are
proposing 90 eight-hour "con-
'struction days" to complete the
pool. Construction days are differ-
ent from regular days they mean
eight hours of fair weather.
Upon completion, the pool will
beeight lanes wide and 25 meters
for competition swimming..
"The swim team is our vision,"
said Eastman. He refers to one of
the selling points during the lobby-
ing period of a swim team for the

middle and high schools, thus
granting access to more athletic
funds.
The YMCA is not working with
anyone in the school system as of
yet. Melody Coggin, athletic direc-
tor at Baker County High School
seemed cool to the idea.
"A swim team is not a realistic
goal for BCHS," said Coggin.
If a swim team is not immediate-
ly organized, competition swim-
ming through the Y will be of-
fered, as will swimming lessons to
children as young as second grade.
"After FCATs, we'll have them
come and introduce them to the
afterr, said Eastman.
Children who aren't Y mem-
bers will pay a $1 entrance fee to
the pool for children under 18.
Children 12 and older will be
admitted without an adult, but
younger children will need super-
vision.
The cost of the pool stands at
$987,000. The funding for the
pool also remains intact.
The pledges total $220,000 and
will be donated over a period of 10
years.
Macclenny also chipped in the

grant of $200,000. The money has
to be spent first in order to receive
the grant.
There is a May 31, 2006 dead-
line for the money to be spent
before the grant expires.

And very much alone
because no boy was will-

lived to pick me up.
It's funny how things
change. Blythewood is
now bustling with
growth. Exclusive gated
communities and rep-
utable equestrian farms
dot the landscape of some
of the most desirable real
estate in the county. A
phenomenal new high
school has been built, fea-
turing, among other
things, a culinary training
institute and a fabulous
performing arts center. A

noise and traffic and the disa
ance of so much of the rural
tryside and the landmark
defined it: farmhouses, barn
tors, fields of corn and ha
beans, stands of pine and
woods and the once.abu
wildlife.
As a writer for The Cc


Chronicle, Blythewood's local
paper, I used my weekly column as
a way to try to preserve some ves-
tige of this way of life that is so
quickly disappearing. I've written
about my great-grandmother's
farmhouse and the amazing meals
of home-grown vegetables and bis-
cuits made from scratch shared in
the kitchen whose windows over-
looked endless rows of tobacco
growing in the surrounding fields.
I've taken readers back to the
time when summer days were
wiled away at the old swimming
hole and nights were spent at the
local skating .rink where girls in
their mid-calf poodle skirts ignored
the flirtations of "bad" boys with
pompadore hairdoos and Lucky
Strike cigarettes rolled up in their
shirt sleeves.
And I've had the privilege to
talk with and write about the per-
sonal recollections of so many
interesting people, like Dan Stev-
ens, Sr., who grew up in his grand-

I'll soon .be writing for The
Baker County Press and I consider
it a privilege. I've already gotten an
ample dose of hospitality from the
many folks I've met at places like
Woody's Bar-B-Q and the Emily
Taber Library. While I was here.for
my job inter iew, I attended the
Baker County Fair and met even
more folks as they stopped by to
chat at the newspaper's booth.
And I found a great place to live
where my two cats, Isabel and,
Jenny, are welcome. I won't be
homesick at all because it doesn't
feel like moving away. It feels,like
coming home '
I hope you will enjoy my col-
umn' in the future. The topics \ ill
be various and broad. There will be
humor and seriousness and some-
times just plain old down to earth
stuff. I truly look forward to getting
to know Baker County and its citi-
zens.

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER


Have you seen the new commer-
cial for the H3, the Hummer that's
the size of an SUV? It features a
very wealthy family of three bears
who return from a shopping trip to
their palatial home to discover that
it's been broken into. They survey'
the damage and then run outside to
the garage.
Dad's gigantic Hummer the size
of a small building is there. The
mom's slightly smaller H2 is there.
But baby bear's H3 has been boost-
ed. Who's the culprit?
Goldilocks of course.
There she is, speeding down a
country road on the way to a chop
shop in Georgia. This is the fourth


H3 that she has stolen this week.
What the bear family hasn't discov-
ered yet is that in the back seat is
Mama bear's jewelry and Papa
bear's gun collection. Under the
seat is the bear family silver. As I
always suspected, Goldilocks is a
cat burglar.
I've always hated Goldilocks
and sympathized with the bears,
even when I first heard my mother
read this fairy tale to me as a child.
I remember asking whether Gold-
ilocks got in trouble for breaking
into the three bears' home and my
mom looked at me a little strangely
and said that she didn't know.
I was no genius, but I knew that
if I broke into my nextdoor neigh-
bor's house and ate all their por-
ridge while they were away at Lit-
tle League, there were going to be
more consequences than just some-
one writing a fairy tale about me.
There were a lot of fairy tales

that I was a little bit suspicious of
when I was a kid. I remember my
parents used fairy tales as cautions.
There were things you weren't sup-
posed to do or you were going to
get in all kinds of trouble.
My mom was a worrier and so
she was very overprotective of my
sister and me. Now that I'm a par-
ent I understand that a little better
but it was very frustrating as a 10
year-old and ever more frustrating
when I was 16.
When I was a little kid, she sup-
ported her over protectiveness by
using fairy tales. In other words,
she' would trot out these fairy tales
to show me how much trouble I
could get into if I didn't toe the
line. It didn't always have the ef-
fect she wanted.
One of the ones I heard a lot was
the Boy Who Cried Wolf, You

Logic suggests others can be trained


to wave school buses over the tracks


IMPRESSIONS
-IaE 9,-

I guessthe state of Florida is'
serious.
If you aren't a uniformed law
enforcement officer, you can't
\%aive school buses' through a rail-
road crossing.
No matter if it's signalled and
gated: no matter if you have an offi-'
cial (crossing guard) uniform on; no
matter, if you can.Spot a train and
hear the warning bells as well as the
next guy you can't do it.
,Well, I suppose you could do it,
.but the law says school bus dri\ ers'
who come up to your crossing still
Shave to come to, a complete stop,
open the right side dopr and peer
down the tracks in that direction,
sweep their heads and scan the
other direction, close the door and
move on.
Is the 10-12 seconds it takes to
do that too much to double-insure
.: the safety of children on the bus in
light of the possibility that the elec-


tric signals have failed. Probably
not.
Does the presence of a person
outside the bus watching the tracks
decrease the danger of the bus get-
ting smacked by a train about as
much? Probably \es.
The man who started all this
ruckus says any vehicle carrying
persons for hire cabs and Grey-
hounds included is supposed to
observe the same law. I don't ride
in cabs a lot, but it's doubtful the
ones I've been in would do so.
In fact, they'd be more likely to
try to outrun an oncoming train
than stop and look both ways, all
the time with terrified passengers in"'
a rear seat.
I can see how the state wants to
strictly limit the people allowed to
wave school buses'through railroad
crossings. I can't see how law en-
forcement training further enhances
one's ability to spot a train coming
down the line.
The eyes, the ears.and their sen-
sory avenues to the brain take care
of that. If you are an otherwise nor-
mial person with a little bit of train-
ing from your local police depart-
ment, you should qualify as some-


one who stands by the crossing and
waves school buses through when
no trains are coming, while stop-
ping them when a train approaches.
They let trained crossing guards
tell little kids when to step out onto
a roadway and potential danger.
You wouldn't want an.idiot doing
that, but then neither would you
want one on a railroad crossing.
The traffic in and around Mac-
clenny will worsen with the pace of
buses crossing without the assis-
tance of guards, but the district has
little choice. Nor does the sheriff's
department.
The law may be such, but the
law can and should be changed to
allow properly trained lay people to
make, the judgement on whether
school buses can cross railroad
tracks.


them wolves are coming. They ring
the town bell, jump up and grab
their weapons to protect against the
wolves at the door.
However, the kid does it so
many times that no one believes
him when it is finally true and the
wolves eat him. Now, my mother
would tell me this cautionary tale
to keep me from "crying wolf."
Usually that meant I shouldn't
blame my sister for stuff she hadn't
done, as I was bad about doing on a
regular basis. My sister, of course,
loudly professed she was innocent
of holding me down and smearing
library paste on my mouth because
I talked too much and drove her
crazy. ,
You'd think this story would
have worked and I would have
learned the lesson so many kids my
age already knew. Not me. I'm a
pretty literal guy and took it that
way. Instead of not blaming my sis-
ter, I was convinced there were
wolves living in the backyard and
any day'I would be eaten by one or
two or three. I still can't hear a
wolf howl without an involuntary
shiver.
I was a pretty practical child
and so fairy tales only. made me
question my own survival. Since I
had that thing with wolves and we
lived in a wooden house, didn't my
parents think it might'be safer to
move up to brick?
After all, you see what happens
to the three pigs when they don't
go along with the local building
codes. I didn't want to risk some
big, bad wolf huffing and puffing
outside out back door.
At eight years old, I also spent a
lot ,oftime wondering what the id-
iots who were the main characters
in these fairy tales were thinking.
Hadn't anyone ever told Hansel
and Gretel those wolves from the
other fairy tale were living in the
woods? They must have been a
couple of nuts with a death wish
for setting off alone into the deep.
dark forest. Bread crumbs. Who
cares about bread crumbs? They
needed a GPS and a Taser.
And what about respect for per-
sonal property? Weie they best
friends with that Goldilocks hood-
lumf who convinced.them it was
okay' to walk up to someone's
house and start eating it?
If I ever.tried to eat my neighbor
Mrs. Bedenbaugh's shutter, I
wouldn't have been allowed out of
the house for a week. At least I'd
have been safe from wolves. In my
8-year-old brain, Hansel and Gretel
deserved what they got.
You know who gets a bad rap in
fairy tales? Stepmothers. Can you
name one fairy tale that has a
"good" stepmother?
Nope. They're always making
their stepkids scrub the fireplace or
sending them off in the forest
where the wolves eat them or try-
ing to get them to chomp on poi-
soned apples.
If I were a kid who listened to
fairy tales I'd be more worried
about a divorce and remarriage
than a wolf blowing down my back
door. At least I could hit that wolf
with a pot of boiling water like that
resourceful pig.
I hope a judge gives Goldilocks
5-10 years for grand theft auto.

Tree Festival
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Philanthropist Catherine B.
Reynolds was the featured speaker
at the fourth annual Festival of
Trees Gala Banquet held Novem-
ber 12, 2005, at the Baker County
Fairground Exhibition Center. The
gala banquet and program was
supported in part by a matching
fund program from the Modern
Woodman of America, Camp
16799.
A native of Jacksonville now
living in Virginia near Washington
and with strong family ties to Bak-
er'County, Ms. Reynolds is the
first self-made business woman to
be selected by Business Week
Magazine's list of the top 50 most
philanthropic living Americans.
During her address, Ms. Rey-
nolds credited her family, especial-
ly examples set by her mother and
uncles as providing inspiration that
led to her successes in the corpo-
rate world.
"My mother told me repeatedly
as I grew up that I could accom-
plish anything I set my mind to
and to not fear failure," she said.
Ms. Reynolds recounted a vivid
childhood memory of being with
one of her uncles who stopped his
car to pick up a destitute family
walking along Highway 90. All of
the children were barefoot.
"He took them into town and
bought them all shoes. That was
my first real lesson in philanthro-
py," the speaker recalled.
The crowd was surprised and
pleased when Reynolds announced
her intention to donate $10,000 to-
ward the building of a chapel at
the Baker County Heritage Park in'
Macclenny, the beneficiary of the
evening'&.event.
During her career, Ms. Rey-
nolds designed an affordable way
for American students to finance
college education by developing
pri'Uitln, funded aliernaii\ e to
go'venmenta.ffianprogrms. It re&-"
olutionized the student loan pro-
gram, and outgrowth was the es-
tablishment of the Catherine B.
Reynolds Foundation.
The education of young people
and moti\ eating them to reach their
greatest potential as citizens and
productive members of society is
the foundation's primary mission.

Bogus bills

The sheriff's department re-

counterfeit bills in circulation and

later, a pharmacy customer at-

Both bills were confiscated and
the customers were unable to say
where they obtained them.
On November 12, an employee

One arrest at Women's Club party


F


r



1


Sheriff's deputies again this
weekend were called to the Mac-
clenny Women's Club on South
5th on loud music and fighting
complaints and ended up closing
down an early morning party and
arresting one person.
Anthony Holmes, 22, of Mac-
clenny was handcuffed after he
resisted and taken to jail charged
with disorderly conduct.
Two deputies said Mr. Holmes
cursed police and Sheriff Joey
Dobson when they arrived about


1:00 am at the club the fourth
time during a two hour period.
Similar incidents have occurred
during recent months, most'the
result of complaints fr6m a nearby
residential area on Mclver and
south on 5th St. The complaints
center on loud music, yelling and
occasional fights outside the build-
ing.
The Women's Club is a land-
mark site near downtown that for
years has been rented on weekends
for private parties and receptions.

Alan was a professional tree sur-
geon and a gymnist in the trees.
With deep sorrow we announce that
Alan passed away unexpectedly in his
sleep. He will be deeply missed by his
family, friends and customers. Alan, as
,well as his mom and dad were in Ocean
Springs, Miss. working on relief efforts
after Hurricane Katrina. While helping
others in need, Alan also did free tree
workfor people who could not afford it.
Alan was our falling hero!
Alan made friends wherever he
went. Literally, people just fell in love
with his personality. It was said he
could make a sadperson glad.
Alan's mom financed everything for'
the business and there was no life in-
surance on him. Now his Mom and Dad
have to face a tremendous loss as well
as a fin,,~ i,,l hardship. Any help from
the community to help them get re-es-
tablished and get back on their feet will
be greatly appreciated.
In lieu of flowers or sentiments,
please send memorial donations to
Mary Spring, PO Box 1271, Glen St.
Mary, FL 32040.
God Bless You!

The Baker County Council on
Aging is in need of volunteer dri-
vers to run meal routes in the Macc-
lenny area. The council currently
have volunteers who take turns run-
ning the route everyday, but the
number of seniors on the route is
creating problems in maintaining
required food temperatures. The
COA need to split the route or
decrease the number of seniors who
receive a meal each day on that
route.
The Council is appealing to the
local churches and businesses to
adopt a new Macclenny meals on,
wheels route by providing a driver
one morning a week.

Ladies split Classic


THE BAKER COIINTY PRESS Thursday, November 17, 2005 Page Eleven

Lady lifters begin practice on Monday


and lose f
BY MICHAEL RINKER
Sports Editor
The Lady Wildcats basketball
team opened its season with a 42-
38 loss to the Hilliard Flashes
Tuesday at the Baker County High
School gym.
Brittany Hinson led the Cats in
scoring with 17 points. Brittany
Ruise scored 7.
"It was a close ball game all the
way through," coach Franklin
Griffis said.
"We had a few more turnovers
and not enough opportunities to
score." -
Griffis cited Jesse Nunn for her
stealing ability. "Ophellia Belford
also did will with rebounding and
Caitlin Griffis did well on
*defense."
Last week, Baker split two
physical games at the Tip-Off
Classic in Lake Butler, defeating
Trenton 42-38 on Thursday, two
days after overcoming a 20-point
deficit but losing 70-61 to Fort
White when five Cats fouled out,
leaving just four to finish the
game.
At the beginning of the Trenton
game, one of the Tigers cut her
neck crashing into the bleachers
while fighting one of the Cats'
players for a loose ball. As a pre,
caution she was taken from the
gym by stretcher to be checked
out. There has been no update on
her condition.
The Cats held the lead through


most of the first half until the
Tigers took a slight lead late in the
second quarter and into halftime.
With a little less than six min-
utes to go in the gahie, the Cats led
33-24 when Kara Dupree got into
a scuffle with a Tiger while fight-
ing for a loose ball. She received a
technical. Her mother, apparently
upset over the situation, was asked
to leave the gym after she had to
be restrained by assistant coach
Cheryl Nunn from confronting
Trenton's coach.
It could have been a turning
point, as the Tiger player was
awarded four free throws two for
physical foul, two for a technical
foul but missed .three of them.
Also, the Tigers had possession of
the ball after the free throws, but
failed to score.
Instead, Brittany Ruise hit a
layup on a fast break to put the
.Cats up 35-25.
Trenton countered with a three-
point play to draw within seven,
but Ruise hit a three-point shot
with about four minutes to go.
Over the next couple of minutes
she also blocked a shot and picked
up a steal to short circuit a poten-
tial comeback.
The Cats' next game is
November,21 at home against
Lake Butler. The varsity begins at
7:30 pm, the junior varsity at 6:00
pm.

The Baker High weightlifting
team practice started November 14
and Coach Scott McDonald is fo-
cused on the basics.
"We weighed in and benched
our max," said McDonald. "We
lost a lot with our seniors graduat-
ing."
The Cats will be defending a re-
gional title this year, and only one
of the four state contenders from
last year, Brooke Arzie, will re-
turn. The other three, Taylor Nix,
Sabrina Tuttle and Alison Carter,
graduated. The trip was the second


for Arzie to regionals.
Baker County came in second
at sectionals last year and sent nine
ladies total to regionals.
"We're looking at an exciting
season," said McDonald, "and we
have a regional title to uphold."
The girls' first match will be
December 7 at Middleburg against
the Lady Broncos with weigh-in at
3:30 pm.

No Teaser rates.


No hidden fees.


No penalties.


Just really low rates.


* itC...


If you shop around for a home equity loan or line of credit, you II find that a
lot of low advertised rates don t look as good when you read the fine print. At VyStar.
the more you read, the better it gets That's because our rate is not a teaser rate lust
to get you in the door and it doesn't go up based on your credit There are no hidden
costs, annual fees or pre-payment penalties that change the true cost of the loan to you. .
In fact, we'll even pay your closing costs on lines of $10.000 to $125,000. We adjust our
best rate monthly to keep it a half a percent below the prime rate as reported by the IWall
Street Journal's Money Rate section and is current as of November 1. 2005. Of course, there
are always limitations and restrictions, such as basic credit approval, the appraised value of
your home and the amount of money you want to borrow But in the end, you'll find that our
low r.-jtes just keep getting better the more you know For example, you can get our best rate
on up to 800% of the value of your home, less the fir r mortgage balance, if it's your primary
residence. Other loan to value rates are equally attractie and again, aren't encumbered by
hidden charges and early payoff fees. Visit a branch or call us for details and learn why we are
thel- learii- in home equity loans and lines of credit
